Paper Enrollment Forms

People First will no longer accept paper enrollment forms for Open Enrollment. Employees will have to make their Open Enrollment elections either online via the People First website or by calling People First at 866-663-4735.

Address Verification Process
Employees will have to verify their mailing address in the People First system before they are able to complete Open Enrollment.
Dependent Certification Process
The Dependent Certification process is still in effect. Employees will be required to complete a dependent verification process for each benefits event [Qualifying Status Change (QSC) and Open Enrollment]. Employees will not be able to make changes to their benefits until they have completed this process.
